NGO support

Coordination SUD helps build the professionalism of and strengthen French NGOs. It also works to improve the legal and financial landscape in which they operate. The platform offers different services for NGOs and develops specific advocacy actions targeting the government authorities. Three complementary functions are being developed within an NGO Support unit:

  • Addressing consultation with the government authorities in France and Europe, financing issues and institution building (COFRI) : Accès aux financements
  • Managing a resource centre: monitoring services, information dissemination, training engineering, professional clubs, support/advice, and an NGO needs observatory for the various aspects of financial, organizational and institution building : Appui à l’organisation
  • Technical secretariat for FRIO, which co-finances outside expertise on the various aspects of French NGOs’ organizational and institutional performance : FRIO
